No shorts!

Why does the Golfers’ Association ban the wearing of Bermuda shorts by golfers during tournaments? Long pants worn during a round of golf in hot weather can be uncomfortable and funny at times (John Daly, for example). However, most putters allow this.

Nicholas Richard’s response:

This question is an integral part of discussions between PGA’s, clubs and equipment manufacturers. The answer is that players continue to wear the pants out of commitment, tradition and professionalism. While some clubs or leagues allow players to wear Bermuda shorts during training rounds, others such as Augusta National, which hosts the Masters Tournament, require players to wear the shorts even during their warm-up. Or when they go to hit the balls in the driving field. Golf is one of the most conservative and rigorous sports in this respect. However, we see a trend of change. Players can now wear hoodies (harp) and “jogging” or “sport” pants. We’re far from the time when you had to wear ironed shirts and pants. The next step will be to allow players to wear Bermuda shorts, which makes sense and will please the vast majority of them.

Who does what on the line?

In offensive line football, a distinction is made between goalkeeper and blocker positions. It seems to me that they have a similar role. So what is the task difference that explains the two terms?

Reply from Miguel Bogold:

They basically have the same duties: to protect the midfielder and to prevent playing on the ground. Since they are at the end of the line, the eyebrows (right and left) should generally be superior in protecting the pass since they are opposed to defensive players whose main strength is center pressure. Especially since one blocker protects the midfielder’s blind spot, depending on whether the latter is a left or right lane. Conversely, goalkeepers are often more adept at blocking ground play because the ball carriers often run in the middle of the line of engagement. They also face larger defensive players whose main task is to stop the ground game. Another difference is that the hurdles are longer than the guards the vast majority of the time. Their long arms help keep the center fighters a bit to the side, and the guards are right in front of the linebacker, which can affect his line of sight. So it is preferable that the guards be a little smaller.

Speak first…and second!

Did a professional team happen to get the first and second picks in the Amateur Draft? And if so, was it worth it?

Reply from Simon Drouin:

Since the first draft in 1963, it has only happened twice in hockey. Each time, it was the Canadian who got the privilege. The reason is simple: until 1969, the Montreal team had the right to choose the first players born in Quebec according to a territorial requirement with the NHL. However, CH could not set his sights on players already “sponsored” by NHL clubs. Thus, in 1968, CH chose goalkeeper Michel Blass and midfielder Roger Pelissell, who did not have much success. Thanks to trade with the Oakland Sells, the Canadians also picked the third player in the auction, defender Jim Pritchard, who settled in two World Hockey League games with the Chicago Cougars. The following year, General Manager Sam Bullock had a better role, drafting Reagan Holly and Mark Tardiff for first and second place. Hall won five Stanley Cups while Tardiff had wonderful years with the Quebec Nordic in the World Hockey League and the National Hockey League. The Boston Bruins followed him with mystery strikers, Don Tanahill and Frank Spring. Future Hall of Fame Bobby Clark Was Still Up for Philadelphia Flyers on 17e Rank…

Responses… from the audience!

We have received some comments regarding the explanation of the offside rule in football. We have retained this explicit explanation by Alain Joslin as a complement to our response.

Alan Josselin’s response:

The offside rule can be explained more simply. There must be at least two players from the opposing team between the potential offside player and the target. Usually one of these players is the goalkeeper and the other is the last defender but not always because the goalkeeper can be in an advanced position especially if the offside happens close to the goal. There are other subtleties, but in practice, that’s all.

Also, on the topic of a one-handed or two-handed backhand in tennis, here’s an additional answer from Pauline Lavrinier, coach and coach of the coaches:

When teaching youngsters, we always use both hands, as the opposite hand (left-handed for right-handed) helps support the head of the racket to adjust different heights and speeds of the ball. Feature: More stability on impact, especially on high or hard balls. On the other hand, you need very good footwork to be behind the ball. As the child gets older, the majority keep the backhand strokes, as they are key players for the majority. Before that, volleyball players such as Edberg, Laver or Federer used one hand. The advantage is the versatility of the shots and the possibility of extending at arm length. Currently, there are a lot of multiplication methods. So we teach the use of hands using the camouflage of a one-handed shot and a one-handed shot. You have to be very strong in your upper body to keep one hand in the circle. You haven’t seen more or few girls using the one-handed backhand because of their physique. On the other hand, among the elderly, due to the movement of the feet, we use only one hand more and more. Less travel, less power and more dexterity.
